A pro-Palestinian protest at the University of Georgia early Monday morning resulted in more than a dozen arrests.

Protestors brought tents and set up an encampment on the University’s North Campus, violating university policy.

A little over an hour later, University police announced the protest was over, and those who stayed on site would be arrested for criminal trespass.

UGA student Nicole Collier took part in the protest, she said university police went too far.

"I think it was unnecessary, we are just students, we were there peacefully, we had no weapons or any type of means of violence, we are just here to stand in solidarity with those who have died in Gaza."

In a statement, University administration says “while the University of Georgia staunchly supports freedom of expression, we will not cede control of our campus to groups that refuse to abide by University policy.”
